Ahaar! 400 mile round trip to collect sails from Moatt Sails. Followed by a visit to MCP Marine of Emsworth to collect TekDek samples.
Anne Marie has her own Facebook account now. Although Facebook weren’t sure for a while what gender she is or indeed when her birthday is. Now they know she was born in 1977 and is female. This is of course her choice to make in advance of any changes in legislation in the UK.
Today saw a major step forward in weather proofing the deck. The whole thing was templated for the laying of a plastic teak looking deck to be fitted at the end of august.
A series of plastic sheets were fitted, cut and marked up to become the patterns over which the Tek Deck will be constructed.
They will be taken back o the Worksop and laid out on the floor to create a picture of Ann Marie’s deck and cockpit layout. Watch out for the end of august when the end result is glued in place.
REAL improvements to report. The six side sections are all glued in place using 3M5200 sealant. And bolted down with loads of massive bolts through the deck sides.
are (well Alan actually) repairing the rear toe rail which had rotted extensively.
The deck is being filled, screw heads counter-sinked, and smoothed out to get a surface ready for the new decking.
Onwards and upwards.
